We were TRICKED!

For Halloween Evelyn was a pig, Leonard was a chick, and David and I were Farmers. It was really cute and I have no clue why I didn't get any pictures of us all together.

We spent Halloween night at our ward party where we manned the PLINKO board that david made. Evelyn and Leonard also got to go around to different classrooms and trick or treat. Evelyn is a pro at it and she only got scared once, she is a brave little thing.

When we got home that night I realized that the office door was open and I knew that I had not left it that way. We turned on the light and realized that the door had been kicked in. Firs I checked the TV because I knew that was what someone would steal first, but it was still there. The wires had been pulled out and you could tell someone had tried to get it but Dave ingeniously had put a three dollar master lock on the wall mount and it had thwarted the thief. We then reallized that they had taken our computer instead. Not the whole thing, just the tower. It was a sad day because, although we couldn't care less about the actual computer, we had not yet backed up the pictures or the videos that were saved on it. So, we lost a part of our families memories, it was very sad, but we were safe and we could have lost a lot more.

Pumpkin Guts

Since we had our pumpkins from the pumpkin patch we had to make Jack-O-Lanturns out of them. So, we invited our new friends, Erin and Mitch, over and we brook out the carving knifes. Evelyn really got into it, Leonard not so much, he didn't really care for the feeling of pumpkin guts. We ended-up busting out the rubber gloves because Leonard's dislike of pumpkin guts is a trait past directly from his dad. We all had a great time and our pumpkins turned out pretty good too.

Pumpkin Patch

This year Evelyn got to go to the pumpkin patch with her preschool. They painted shirts a few days before and they were all very excited. David, Leonard and I joined Evelyn and it was a lot of fun. At the pumpkin patch we got to go on a hey ride, visit a petting zoo, and pick out our own pumpkins. I had a lot more pictures but sadly I had already down loaded them on to our computer which was stolen a few days latter. But, here is what was on Dave's phone.

Productivity and Poop

I've been feeling a little down lately. No particular reason just an emotional slump that I am hoping will end soon. So, today I thought i would try the old productivity trick to see if that might be the trick to pick me up. Not that I am not productive everyday, it just gets a little monotonous. So, today I added a little extra to my normal schedule of general cleaning, feeding, and entertaining. I went grocery shopping, mopped the floors, cleaned out the frige and the freezer, cleaned out all my food cabinets, made pumpkin cookies, and pizza. It was a busy day, especially when you remember that between all that i played catch, and Thomas train, drew some flowers on the side walk, changed a few poopy diapers, cleaned up a few accidents, and put Evelyn's hair in pig tails for the first time.

Then there was the POOP! So, Evelyn has been into this new thing of dumping the contence of her potty seat into the big potty and flushing it. As you can imagine, this opens up many opprotunities for some pretty nasty messes (lucky me). Well, a few hours ago we had the best one yet. She had just gone number two and as usual she wanted to "dump it" but I wasn't there to help her so, I call back to see if she is finished and she says she is I go back to the bathroom expecting to see her sitting on the potty waiting. Nope, instead I find a puddle of pee and three large pieces of poo trailing from her potty to the big potty and she is covered in it too. As you can imagine the poductivity and poop combo didn't cure my emotional slump but I am sure I will feel better soon. Tomarrow is the pumpkin patch and I am going to dye my hair tonight, something is bound to pull me out of this slump I just have to be patient.
